Beto O’Rourke Tops MoveOn 2020 Presidential Poll

An early straw poll of members of the progressive group MoveOn shows a wide-open competition for liberal voters in the 2020 Democratic presidential contest, with Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-Tx) narrowly beating out former Vice President Joe Biden.

The poll shows that a plurality of respondents — 29 percent — said they either did not yet know whom they would support or wanted someone else not listed among the group’s more than 30 potential candidate choices.

The most popular potential candidate was O’Rourke, , who was selected by 15.6 percent of respondents, followed by Biden at 14.9 percent, and then Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with 13.1 percent.
